Hi, I can't get Pardus 2007.2 onto my recently bought Toshiba.

I've been trying all the installer options, but the system won't switch to the installer GUI.

This notebook suits a Pentium CoreDuo, a ICH8 controlled sata hard disk,  an intel 965 integrated graphics card (that's how it's detected, some specs say its a intel x3100).

The problem seems to be the graphics card / switching the graphics mode.

Anyone had such a (strange) issue?

This issue will probably be solved with Pardus 2008, if it isn't solved in Pardus 2008 betas please report a bug at http://bugs.pardus.org.tr

This should let you install now:

Thanks, I'll try it that way.

And sorry, this post should have been to the "laptop" forum, but it's a installer/installation problem also.

And as for Pardus 2008... how's the work going? Any news for the public?  Wink

One of the core developers put a 2008 roadmap here today: http://tr.pardus-wiki.org/Yol_Haritas%C4%B1:Pardus-2008
It's in Turkish but I'll translate it this weekend if anyone doesn't do it before me.

I followed the link to the previous post you mentioned and appending xorg=safe at the kernel string did the job!

The installation followed using the vesa driver. Though the system boots up to the vesa 800x600 resolution instead of the intel 965 1280x800 wide, I'll try it with a kernel compile.

So, the graphics card was fault.
Again, thanks for the tip!

Please keep me informed when you have the english translation of the 2008 roadmap available, looking forward to it.
